She likes the effect of a blurry background with clear in focus target.

Which I believe she was set for. She was in Aperture priority with it opened as wide as that lens would go at that focal Length. The ISO was just set too high. The camera was trying to compensate by cranking the shutter speed up but 1/4000th is as fast as it would go.

Basically if the ISO was at 400 or 100 the image would be less blown out. Or if there was less sun. A little practice  and some books/videos and she will be set. I like the adoramatv videos on youtube by Mark Wallace. They have some pretty good intro videos.
